Tyson was as rough and tough as they come. The way he acted, the way he looked, and the way he destroyed fighter after fighter for years definently made him a bad mofo. Tyson was legitimately tough, Buster Douglas WHUPPED him for 8 rounds and with Tysons eye completely swelled up he rallies to drop Douglas. He took his beating as good as anyone could of. Ruddock also hit him with monster punches and he walked through them like nothing.
